Remove the front retainer, wire/spring affair.
slip the front of the seal off.
seal is held onto drum by a large sprung retainer, remove this by levering it off with a screwdriver.
put the new seal in and it's a case of putting the retainers back. the inside can be made easier with the application of some soapy water in the seals groove that the inner retainer sits in.
good luck as it can be easy or difficult doing the same job.

The door of my washer hotpoint aqualtis won't close because the lock seems to be on. The washer cycles work fine but the door cannot be closed. What can I do?

The door lock is thermal, so simply switching off doesnt work.
Switch off at the power point for at least 10 min.
If still no good, replace the interlock.

My hotpoint aqualtis washing machine has started to smell following a wash cycle of domestic cleaning cloths. It completes a normal cycle. I have also checked the filter at the front and it is clear. Any...


Every 30 days is a good idea to use the 90deg wash cycle with just a towel in it with no detergents or use the descaling products available in the market with the 90 Deg hotwash. This problem also happens when always cold wash is used as detergent only really disolve well when the temp is 26 deg c or more.

There could also be mould in the machine which can be found round the bellow seals. IF it is present normally like dark spots and minor then they can be cleaned with methyl alcohol but if it is too many then the seal needs to be replaced. ALso after a wash wipe down the bellow seal with a dry cloth and keep the door slightly open for the internals to vent and dry.

Hope this helps.

A hotpoint aqualtis aqxx149pm spinning loudly

Hi, This is a common problem with the hotpoint range. It will be the main wash bearings that have failed and need replacing. This is a very easy process but is quite time consuming. Remember tho change everything that is; Bearings, and bearing spider and front tub seal as you dont want to have to do it again in a short time or have leaks coming from the front.
Good luck and get back to me if you need any further help....................
